Amateur Telescope Making

Ison peilin muotoilua My hobby is amateur telescope making and on this web page I have introduced some of my projects. As early as a comprehensive school pupil I tried to put some shaving mirrors and little pieces of other mirrors together in order to make a telescope. However, I built my first real Newtonian telescope when I was 16 years old. This is why I look rather funny on those pictures about my earlier projects! I hope these pages help other telescope makers and inspire some people to start making their own telescopes!

I'm sorry but some of the pages are still in Finnish. I will translate the pages little by little...
